Geek Rage

Over at Den of Geek, Simon Brew’s written an intriguing editorial about why nerds hate on other nerds.

It does get you thinking – why, when so many of us are ostracised on a daily basis by peers and colleagues for our geekery, do we then go home and head online to duke it out virtually with people that we probably have quite a lot of common ground with?

Self-hatred?  Blind dislike of media property X obscuring the fact that it’s no better than media property Z which we’re totally enamoured of?  Not having anything better to do?  Or our old friend, Blessed Internet Anonymity?

Whatever the reason, there’s no rationale for it and it just makes us look stupid.  Leave the blind hatred to the Sports Ball fraternity and let them waste their energy on pledging their troth to multi-millionaire half-wits who don’t know that they exist.  

We’re supposed to be busy inheriting the earth, for pity’s sake!
